1. About this page

The First Minister has set Scotland's route map for a careful and phased exit from lockdown that will gradually ease restrictions.

Regional work is restarting according to regional priorities. Remote working remains the default for those who can work from home. Only those who cannot work from home will be expected to return to work outdoors. No one should return to outdoor working without written authorisation from their Regional or Delivery Manager. Office buildings will continue to be closed to most staff. Essential worker letters will no longer be required for FLS staff working outdoors.

The biggest single factor in returning to work safely is to continue hand washing, cough hygiene and physical distancing. This will be essential - so too will compliance with Scottish Government's test, trace, isolate and support system.

Below you'll find information, guidance and support to help you during this time – whether that's working from home or returning to work outdoors. The safety and wellbeing of all our people is central to our approach.
